After reading neal's report, I got the bug that every stupid fisherman in the front range caught.... so I did a little bit of research, and with help from a few willing people.... I found a spot to wash lures and clean my tackle box.
put in some black metal in the CD player, since walleye being what they are... are unholy demon fish with glowing eyes and nasty teeth. Emperor and behemoth did the job nicely in getting me pumped. Fished from 8 till 11, and at 9:30 right after Zman messaged me, something hit my lure..... I got excited because it was pulling like crazy, and then...
I got pissed. a 17 inch rainbow.
so I moved to another spot, changed lures to something a little smaller.... and then presto!
I missed a few more bites, I was trying to experiment with different retrieves... it seemed I had bites presenting a faster retrieve with subtle pops.
after that, the wind really picked up and I decided it was a good time to head home and have some beers.
So thanks, dicks. Now when I'm in cheyenne for the week... I'm going to purchase a bunch of smithwicks and suspending raps, and go fish in the evenings for these stupid but really tasty fish. probably at horsetooth too. just kidding, I love you shitheads and the walleye reports are really inspiring. keep em coming.
I find that starting my 'eye evenings off with 'Enter Sandman' always gets me in the right mood. And then when I get skunked, I drive home with the gentle strains of 'Harvester of Sorrow' wafting out of the speakers.
